You! The students of Southbridge High School —
you must be out there somewhere! At times it seems
that there isn't anybody out there doing anything. At
times it seems that the spirit of Southbridge High has
died. It is at times like these when you must realize
that there is somebody out there!
There's somebody scoring goals for the Pioneers,
somebody writing articles for the yearbook, some-
body getting involved in the Student Council, some-
body contributing something to Southbridge High.
Don't look too far — just take a minute and think.
If you are out there — let someone else know about
it and give something of yourself back to Southbridge
High School for all that it has given to you.
So, next time you hear someone asking, "Is there
anybody out there?" don't be embarrassed to stand
up and say, "I am."

The Musket? Since when has our book been called
The Musket? Since when has our book had any name
at all? Actually, our book has always had a name, it
was just never carried out, so unfortunately, the
yearbooks at Southbridge High have been nameless.
This year's yearbook staff racked their brains try-
ing to think of an appropriate name for the South-
bridge High book. The search proved to be less than
profitable — at least fifty choices of boring names
that would be shelved away next year leaving the
book without a name once again.
Then, we found it! One of the staff members came
forward with a 1963 Southbridge High yearbook. It
was called "The Musket." At first we thought it
sounded pretty boring, but under further scrutiniza-
tion, we realized that we were dealing with a legacy.
Twenty-five years ago, these words were etched
in print. "We, the seniors of 1963, have selected
"Musket" (as our name) and shall pass it on to all
future senior classes at Southbridge High School. We
believe that the Musket is a symbol of the leadership,
the courage, and the forebearance of the Pioneers.
We hope that by setting such high ideals for our-
selves and for our fellow students we will be able to
live them up together."
Hence, the name of "The Musket" has been rein-
carnated and shall once again represent the true
spirit of Southbridge High.

"But mom, why can't I have a job? Ev-
eryone else does!" This plaintive cry is not
as common as one might think among the
students at Southbridge High School. In a
random sampling, it was revealed that
seventy percent of high school students
have jobs, with the majority satisfied in
their present positions.
Paying jobs provide students with an
opportunity to purchase needed ameni-
ties, although many deposit half of their
earnings in a savings account for college or
However, those students who do not
have jobs are far from being inactive. A
large amount of non-working students re-
ported that they are far too busy with ath-
letics, extracurricular activities, and the
like to responsibly hold a job.
Contrary to other views, high school
students and jobs, unlike the proverbial oil
and water, do mix.

Festive Fun at Fall Festival
This September 1 1th through the 13th,
the grounds of Notre Dame parish were
stomped by the feet of approximately
one-hundred fun-seeking SHS students.
Why the big gathering? It was the week-
end for the Fall Festival. Why so many
people? Junior John Shaw quotes, "Noth-
ing really happens in Southbridge and
when something like this comes around,
everyone makes it a point to go."
The Fall Festival, an annual event put
on by the parish of Notre Dame, is re-
ferred to by most teens as the social event
of the year. It is a place where teens come
to meet their friends, chance their luck at
a numbers game and stuff themselves with
mouth-watering fried dough. This is the
place where relationships begin and end
for students at SHS.
Students may attend a dance on Friday
night or try their luck at winning a giant
stuffed animal or even an extra ten dollars
at the Chug-a-Lug booth.
The Fall Festival also sets the stage for
a variety of new experiences. Freshmen
are welcomed into the high school scene
with a touch of friendly initiation. Upper-
classmen get together for a "night on the
town." Former graduates return to remi-
nisce with old high school buddies.
Within three days, all of the excitement
is gone but the memories of the festival
never seem to disappear.
Erin Montigny and Paul Girard clearly show that love "balloons" at the Fall Festival.

the Blood Drive
On Tuesday, October 5, 1987 students
SHS selflessly donated 31 units of blood.
This bi-annual blood drive was sponsored
by SHS Student Council, under the coor-
dinators Jennifer Ferron and Mandi
The underwelming turnout was pla-
gued by fearful students. When asked
what the big scare was, students surpris-
ingly responded: the needle, the nurse,
and AIDS. Though pamphlets concerning
the disease were passed out to all stu-
dents, some still remained skeptical.
Fainting was also of great concern. One
student claimed she wouldn't give blood in
fear of fainting after she did so at last
year's blood drive.
All in all the blood drive was a positive
experience for all who took part, whether
as donors or as supporters.

Spirit! What is it? Is it being psyched up for a game? Is it
coming up with a winning score? Is it being the loudest class at a
rally? Is it defeating Bartlett at the Thanksgiving Day game?
For the Pioneers, it is the role of the cheerleader to promote
spirit. This takes a lot of time and dedication.
Aside from having practice after school and planning rallies,
every week the cheerleaders have to deck the halls and lockers
with decorations. Streamers of red, white, and metallic blue
adorn the halls of SHS. Posters with phrases such as "Eat 'em
Alive" and "Scalp the Indians" hang along the lockers. The
question is, are these efforts really worth it? Are they a source
of moral or just a tradition to be carried on by all cheerleaders?
Are they appreciated, or just taken for granted?
Cheerleaders feel that their efforts are taken for granted,
while players say they really do appreciate the time and effort
put forth by the squad. Although this argument could be de-
bated back and forth, most students would agree that it takes a
certain type of person to dedicate all of the time necessary to

tines. Cheerleading is still not considered a sport by many.
Regardless of how it is viewed, a cheerleader has to be just as

athlete. Perhaps it is harder, cheerleaders have to constantly

Gosk Hits 1,000
On January 9, 1988 the SHS Varsity Basketball team was
presented with a task — to beat the Auburn Dandies and clinch
a lead in the Border Conference. With 31 seconds left in the
second quarter, senior forward Christopher Gosk sunk a lay-up
that sent the fans and team to their feet. Chris became the
seventh player in Southbridge High history to enter the 1.000
Plagued by an opening game ankle injury which kept Chris
off the court for three weeks, he made a remarkable comeback
and once again was able to contribute to the Pioneer's cause.
An outsider wouldn't have known that Gosk was approaching
such a milestone in his playing career. He exhibited control and
team cooperation just like it was any other game. Chris played
a superb first half and eventually led the Pioneers to an 83-82
victory over the Auburn Dandies.

Now that you are a member of
the elite upperclass at SHS, you
are able to attend the prom in the
Spring. There is one catch. As a
junior class, it is your responsibil-
ity to prepare for the prom and
make all of the arrangements.
The major part of the first semes-
ter is spent looking at places and
listening to bands with hopes of
putting on the best prom ever!
SATs! What an experience!
Nothing else throughout your
high school career can com-
pare with the knots in your
stomach on the morning of
SATs. Three agonizing hours
that hold the fate of your fu-
ture. Nerves are on edge and

realize that in two years time
you will be out on your own.
Soon the SATs will seem like a
fond memory, as you ap-
proach their devious counter-
parts . . . Achievements.

comes to an end, a feeling of nos-
talgia creeps over you. Most, of
your friends are heading their
separate ways next year. Every-
one has a pretty good idea where
they will be six months from
Graduation Day. You have suc-
ceeded in getting through SHS.
Senior Activities become very
important. For the first time you
really feel like a class. You begin
to appreciate the people you
have taken for granted over the
past three years. First there is the
prom, a night when everyone
dances and the sky is the limit.
Next comes the Senior Banquet,
a last hoorah for everyone to be
together before Graduation Day.
You look on in disbelief as
one friend after another com-
pletes the Driver's Education
course and makes their way on
to the road. Soon enough, you
have your own license and
within a few months you can't
remember how you survived
without it. Now, the only trick
is finding a parking space with-
in the vicinity of the school.
Seniors at last! You thought the
day would never come. You are on
the home stretch and according to
previous seniors, this is your year to
coast through school with an abun-
dance of gut courses. True? Not by
far. There is always something to be
done, always somewhere to go.
Teachers seem to have little sympa-
thy for severe cases of senioritis.
Guidance sees you now more
than ever. You are constantly be-
ing faced with deadline after
deadline. Applications to schools
and scholarships have to be sent
out on time. College campuses
are frequently visited by students
in search of the school for them.

school life that every student must come

be done. No one looks forward to seeing

The Heat is On
Deadlines are closing in. So much
is happening so fast. Two years are
behind you, and less than two are
left. Junior year is the year in which
you can make or break a successful
high school career and your chances
at the college of your choice. Deci-
sions made now may very well have
By now the mailboxes of most
students have already started filling
up with information on the many
options available for continuing
one's education. Such things as
class rank, grade point averages,
and SAT scores are constant re-
minders that graduation is creeping
closer and closer. Two years may
seem like a long time, but as the
year goes on you soon realize that
this is just an illusion.
In between studying for SAT's
and looking over prospective col-
leges it's often difficult to find time
for schoolwork. However, grades in
your junior year count for more than
in any other. The heat is on, indeed.
It's comforting though, knowing
that all of your work will soon pay

There's something going around sophomore year and it's
very contagious. What is it? Well, it's no other than Class Ring
Fever. It is diagnosed as the condition of having extreme
anxiety to show others that one has officially entered the high
The fever begins in early October and continues throughout
the school year. It is during this time many decisions must be
made. What size should I get? What color stone do I want —
the school color or my birthstone? What do I want as an
emblem? Do I want a Josten's or an Artcarved?
Although the fever is very tiring, once the ring is ordered,
one begins to regain strength. The waiting process of six to
eight weeks allows all to recuperate.
With no further ado, the ring arrives. Miraculously, the
fever is cured and all sophomores gather together to dazzle
Sophomores / 1
Caught in the Middle
Pat yourself on the back. You've com-
pleted your first year of high school. You
are now a sophomore. No longer a new
experience, getting from class to class is
, not a problem. Surroundings are familiar.
Unlike freshman year when everything
, was a new experience, sophomore year is
anticlimactic. You're not the youngest
anymore, but you're still not experienced
enough to be considered an upperclass-
man. You think you know what you're
doing and where you're going, but things
change as time goes on.
So much work to be done. Sophomores
find that classes are harder and teachers
less forgiving as you move up. More is
expected from you by everyone. A multi-
tude of labs, reports, papers, and tests all
seem to be due at the same time. There is
a possibility that you may even have to do
some of your work at home. Such abstract
ideas as SAT's and college choices will
soon become very real, but for now you
can just take things day by day. You are
just a sophomore.

Initiation, perhaps the greatest fear of any freshman enter-
ing high school, has finally ended. For many generations,
initiation has been practiced, but only as a way of having fun.
Kissing a senior's ring or carrying a stack of trays at lunch were
among the many duties a young freshman might be told to do.
Unfortunately, the practice of initiation became more vio-
lent over the past few years. It was so bad, state and school
officials were forced to examine its practice. Any student
caught provoking initiation could be fined as much as $500 or
even be sentenced to a jail term.
With these new laws, freshmen are not as worried to enter
high school as in the past. Instead, they look forward to
spending perhaps the best four years of their lives.
The Freshman Experience
Freshman year can best be ex-
pressed with a single word: Big. Big
buildings, Big people, and Big
changes are all around you. Times
are changing and so are you.
Lockers and classrooms line the
walls of corridors which seem to
stretch for miles. Dwarfed by the
larger part of the student body, you
rush about, not quite sure of where
or why you're going.
A traumatic experience? Defi-
nitely, at least for the first few
weeks. At times you feel as thought
you're in a nightmare, not able to
However, things do get better. As
you progress through the year, it
gets easier. You learn where you're
going and are able to get there.

eye of a lazy observer, but not to those
who are familiar with the countless hours
of practice dedicated to the flawless ex-

and half-time formations.
The ideal cheerleader is hard to find —
she must be expressive, well-groomed,
and have above average gymnastic abili-
ties. However, while keeping these traits
in mind, a cheerleader must also fare well
academically. This requires an intense de-
votion to her studies in the amount of time
left after she has cheered at games, par-
ticipated in rallies, and decorated the lock-

On November 7, 1987, pandemonium
broke loose at McMahon Field as the Pio-

the Tantasqua Warriors by a score of 14-

big game for the past fifteen years, but in
1987, the tables turned, leaving the Pio-
neers in defeat.
As always, this game was pleasant for
the parents of senior football players,
cheerleaders, and band members. Con-
tinuing with tradition, students presented
their mothers a corsage and greeted their
fathers with a warm hand shake.
It was also on this day that greats such
as Mr. Harry J. McMahon, Mr. Ted Far-

Jane Cormier, new Varsity Basketball coach, knew
she had a young and inexperienced team, but felt the
key would be continued improvement from game to
game. The Pioneerettes, though not victorious, made
valiant attempts, and were perceived as a strong op-
ponent by many rival teams.
The Pioneerettes received a setback well before the
season started when junior Nicole Labarge injured her
knee during the field hockey season. Nicole, who
missed the last basketball season with a knee injury as
well, was projected to be one
of the teams strongest forces
offensively and defensively.

the Junior Varsity squad, un-
der the coaching of Debbie
Deacon. Though the Pioneers
lacked a winning record, the
girls proved to have a positive
attitude which gained them
respect from their opponents.

Southbridge vs. Bartlett. Students, faculty, and
friends piled into the SHS gym to witness the rematch
of these two rival teams. School spirit could be felt
throughout the room. Posters were hung about the
gym with such slogans as "Scalp the Indians!" and
"Watch out Bartlett, you're on our turf now!" by mem-
bers of the Varsity Cheerleading squad. The team was
facing Bartlett for the second time this season. The last
match had resulted in a heartbreaking loss for the
Pioneers as the game was ripped from their hands at
the final buzzer. The Pioneers
were hungry for a victory.
An emotional charge
sparked the players as they
immediately dominated the
game both offensively and de-
fensively. The first half
proved to be evenly matched
as teams traded baskets. At
half time Southbridge was
A late Bartlett rally didn't
stop the Pioneers, and the end
result was a 74-59 victory for
Southbridge. Hugs and kisses
were exchanged throughout
the crowd. Cheerleaders and
team members huddled to-
gether in the center of the
court. This game was a victo-
ry for all students present. A
victory for the team, and for a
ittle girl who made all stu-
dents come together instilled
in all spectators a true feeling
of pride in SHS.

The Freshman team, ripened with another new
bunch of future Varsity players, was in need of a
new coach. Todd Costa, a former SHS graduate
and Varsity Basketball player applied and was cho-
sen as the new coach. Costa immediately started
reviewing fundamental skills and agility drills. To
his surprise, the freshmen seemed to have the
game in control.
Led by Captain David DiDon-
ato, the Pioneers started the sea-
son rolling with a victory over
Woodstock. The Pioneers were
victorious for three more games
until a last minute foul out in
overtime by Brian Gendreau
broke their winning streak with
an upset from Putnam. Overall
the season was a learning exper-
ience for everyone involved.
The J.V. Basketball team, un-
der the direction of Luis Pena,
was led by sophomores Ken
Amiott and Michael Bousquet.
Kevin Berthiaume led the Pio-
neers offensively from the top of
the key, managing the ball and
calling the plays, in an attempt to
find Mike Bousquet open from
the corner or Eddie Rosario from
underneath. Though the season
was not a successful one, it pro-
vided the players with exper-
ience for future Varsity years.

What's going on? It seems that there is
always something going on at Southbridge
High School. Whether it be a fund raiser, a
rally, or some other activity designed to
promote school spirit, there is an organiza-
tional body that coordinates all of these
programs that students often take for
granted. That body is the Student Council.
The main function of this group of elected
students is to espouse school pride among
all students. In addition to this role, mem-
bers are also expected to take part in less
exciting activities. It is the responsibility of
Student Council to make morning an-
nouncements, monitor class elections, and
deliver lunches to the students in ISS. No,
the job is not all glamour, but all students
involved find it enriching and rewarding.
So, if you have some spare time some
afternoon, why not sit in on a Student
Council meeting. Take a chance and be-
come a student in action yourself.

An Exchange Of
Exchanges are common enough, just
witness any major department store on
December 26, as harried clerks dash
through stockrooms fulfilling customers'
orders for goods.
Well, exchanging inanimate objects is
one thing, but people? It may sound remi-
niscent of an illegal black market, yet it
occurs every year as members of foreign
nations pack their bags and journey to
Southbridge for a year of American life.
This school year was heralded by the
arrival of three new students, Lorenzo
Agati from Italy, Anatoli Lambriandou
from Germany, and Bertrand DeLombart
from Belgium, along with returning Yugos-
lavian Stavre Vesovski.
Although for the first few days hushed
voices announced their presence in hall-
ways and classrooms, they were soon si-
lenced when familiarity set in. After wel-
coming these three foreigners and at-
tempting to "Americanize" them, we
realized that we had not only accom-
plished a physical exchange of bodies, but
an emotional one as well with the sharing
of ideas, cultures, and most importantly,

The Proud Few
Becoming a member of the National
Honor Society is surely the high school
version of the American Dream. Mem-
bership has undeniably become associ-
ated with academic success, hopefully
insuring college-bound students with
entrance into the university of their
Now, as in past years, the most well-
known requirement is the illustrious
3.5 grade point average that must be
maintained throughout a high school
But has the Society merely become
a glorified honor roll? One might be
tempted to think so, but scholarship is
not the only factor. In addition, aspir-
ing juniors must show leadership, pos-
sess a well-developed character, and
dedicate themselves to the communi-
If one is able to fulfill these require-
ments, they are allowed to join the
ranks of the privileged few, those who
are now among the "nationally hon-

After a frenzied night of hectic prepara-
tion, anxious anticipation rocked the gym
as the annual Thanksgiving Rally began.
Under the leadership of advisers Mr.
Brooke Mitchell and Mrs. Diane Allard,
the junior class disproved the "Seniors-
always-win." mindset by obtaining the
first place overall class spirit trophy after
three, well-deserved wins in the skit, post-
er, and yelling competitions.
An added attraction at this year's rally
was the crowning of a new Miss Turkey, as
senior Craig Boisvert abdicated his crown
to freshman Darryl Howe after a four-year
reign. Darryl, serve your subjects well!
Another surprising addition to this
year's rally blew in like a cyclone — the
faculty presented its own revised version
of the classic children's story, The Won-
derful Wizard of Oz.
A munchkin-like mentality remained
during the awards presentation. Each of
the junior class's first place wins was punc-
tuated by high-pitched giggles and
screams. Nevertheless, after class rival-
ries were set aside, school spirit remained
in force, insuring a full-capacity crowd for
the coming game against Bartlett High
School on Thanksgiving Day.

Remembering a Friend
In Memory of
Michelle, we miss you so much,
We just don't understand.
You gave yourself to everyone,
And met all of our demands.
Why was it you
Who was taken away?
Your memory will live on
In our hearts, everyday.
For everything we wanted to say
But never got the chance,
Will grow deeper in our hearts
And our feelings will enhance.
You touched every person;
Respect, you always earned.
You gave everything you had
And asked nothing in return.
You always had a smile
To brighten up the day.
May you be that happy now
With God, that's what we pray.
You left us unexpectedly.
No one was prepared.
We didn't get to say good-bye,
Or tell you that we cared.
We didn't say how great you were
Or how happy you made us all.
We didn't tell you we'd miss you
Or that you were such a doll.
Now, everything we hear or see,
Or say, or think, or do
Will remind us of our "Little
Who everybody knew.
There are so many things if we had
We'd sit you down and tell you,
But the most important thing of all
Michelle . . . We love you!

Pioneer Prom fever is written all over Monique
Always Up To Par
Last year's Border Conference champi-
ons made a repeat performance with this
year's golf season. Led by senior captain
James Robida, the Pioneers were able to
procure high standing in District competi-
tion. It seems as though the future of
Southbridge High golf is also promising.
The 1988 season brought forth such new
prospects as Aaron Berthiaume, Nick Gio-
vanello, and Jonathon Osimo.

Led by Senior Tri-captains Todd Berry,
Ed Galonek, and Harry Theodoss, and
Coach Rick Silver, the Varsity Baseball
team made a valiant attempt at a victori-
ous season. Though their overall record
was 5-11, they were not a team to be
taken lightly. The J.V. Baseball team had
a comparable season. With a record of 3-9
overall, they just could not seem to over-
come key opponents. Once again, this
season will be regarded as a building year,
and the experience gained will hopefully
benefit next year's team.

Another Building Year
This year's Pioneerettes unfortunately
had a disappointing season. The Varsity
team was faced with replacing a starting
pitcher, catcher, short stop, and left field-
er. It was the inexperience of the teams
that led to their defeat. Though this year's
season was not a success, the underclass-
men on the Varsity and J.V. certainly
gained valuable experience which will
propel them on to many victorious future

tained a respectable overall record of 5-9.

Just You and I
There was magic in the air. Luxury
automobiles and limousines strode up to
the edifice of Mechanics Hall on the even-
ing of May 27, 1988. This was the evening
of the Southbridge High School prom.
Couples walked the lavish stairwells of the
halls to the ballroom where the evening's
festivities were to be held. Music played
while couples ate and danced the night
away. It certainly was a night "You and I"
will never forget.
